The project scope is to provide a 30-classroom primary school, comprising assembly hall, student activity centre, library, visual art rooms, general office and other ancillary facilities. This project adopts green features in building design, construction and operation. The school was designed in L-shaped comprising a classroom block and a hall block, which are linked with bridges and podium deck, to create an interest for the circulation. The massing of hall block is designed with setback garden area, to soften it massing when we perceive along the corridor or at the playground, and at the same time, provide outdoor space for student’s learning and social activities.
